The Bike Shed Project


The Central region Bike Shed project is an opportunity for our children to boost their self confidence and build self esteem in a practical environment. 


Children love fixing things with tools and at Bike Shed this is an effective way of developing their motor skills and coordination. 


Bike Shed provides hands-on training in a realistic setting. “It feels like we are working in a real garage!”


As the program progresses a sense of belongingness and collaboration develops. The children build a little community of ‘bike engineers’; talking to each other, offering help, sharing their skills and showing empathy.


We have developed strong links with local businesses, such as Halfords, who are now working with us to provide discounts on tools and to donate bicycles.
